The first building blocks for a new stadium and sports facility for Christchurch have finally been laid.

Seven years after the earthquakes destroyed Lancaster Park and many sports facilities around Christchurch, the announcement of the new facilities means a lot to Canterbury sporting organisations.

The story was part of a programme broadcast on Plains 96.9 FM, Canterbury's community access radio station.
